The major difference between Bullets for Rustlers and the previous entries in Charles Starrett's western series is that Lorna Gray, rather than Iris Meredith, plays the heroine. Otherwise, it's the mixture as before, with hero Starrett working side by side with the Cattlemen's Protective Association to flush out a gang of rustlers. The story moves along in utterly predictable fashion to the anticipated climactic mano y mano fight between Starrett and perennial bad guy Dick Curtis. The film's highlight is a well-mounted stagecoach chase, which would pop up with regularity via stock footage in future Starrett vehicles. And as always, the musical interludes are served up by Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers.
